Eddie Hearn signs Pat McCormack, Mark Dickinson for promotions
Pat McCormack, who won a silver medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, and Mark Dickinson, a decorated former member of Team Great Britain’s Podium Squad, have both signed contracts to compete for Matchroom Boxing.
The highlight of McCormack’s illustrious amateur career was winning Olympic silver in the Welterweight class, which brought McCormack’s record to 2-0 with two knockouts. Before that, the Sunderland native, who is now 27 years old, had previously won a gold medal in both the 2018 Commonwealth Games, which were held on the Gold Coast, and the 2019 European Games, which were held in Minsk. Since becoming professional with Ben Davison earlier this year, the former Team GB ace has won both of his fights via knockout, giving him a perfect record.
Dickinson, who hails from Durham and has a record of 3-0 with one knockout, earned a name for himself in the amateur ranks by competing for Team Great Britain on many times and winning gold in the European and Commonwealth Youth Games. Since entering the professional ranks for the first time in October 2021, the middleweight contender, who is 23 years old and is being trained by Davison, has gotten off to a winning start with three victories from his first three bouts in the category.
McCormack Stated That ….
He believes he is in the best position to be able to fulfill his potential with the backing of Matchroom Boxing and DAZN. “I feel I am in the perfect location to be able to fulfill my potential,” “I can’t wait to get started on this thrilling trip, and I have no doubt in my mind that I have what it takes to win the World Championship. There is no one better to collaborate with in boxing than Eddie and Matchroom, and McCormack am confident that they will get me to the very pinnacle of the sport.
Dickinson expressed his excitement about getting things rolling with the support of Matchroom Boxing and DAZN, saying, “I am thrilled to start things moving.” “I think there are some tremendous evenings in store for me, and I’m enthusiastic and driven to demonstrate what I’m capable of doing and what I’m capable of being.” I am certain that I can continue to make significant strides in this sport with Ben, Matchroom, and DAZN behind me.”
Ben Davison expressed his enthusiasm by saying, “I’m incredibly enthusiastic for both of these adventures to continue.” “Eddie, Matchroom Boxing, and DAZN were all interested in Pat McCormack and Mark, and I really feel that this is the ideal environment for them to be in.” They will be presented with the opportunity essential for their growth and the realization of their potentials. Fans from all around the world are going to really like seeing these young men perform live both in person and on DAZN since there is no question that they possess exceptional talents.”
Eddie Hearn, the Chairman of Matchroom Sport, expressed his excitement at the signing of Pat McCormack and Mark Dickinson, saying, “I’m happy to welcome two of Britain’s brightest talents in the North East to the Matchroom stable.” The results that Pat McCormack has achieved in amateur competition speak for itself. A silver medal at the Olympics in 2020 to be held in Tokyo, a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in 2018 to be held on the Gold Coast, and a gold medal at the European Games to be held in 2019 to be held in Minsk, along with many more medals.
He is without a doubt one of the very greatest amateurs we have witnessed on these shores in recent years, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to steer his professional career moving forward.
“Mark is another product of the illustrious Birtley Boxing Club and is considered to be one of the most exciting prospects in British boxing. He had a successful amateur career, during which he competed for Great Britain on many occasions and won gold medals at the Youth Commonwealth Games and the European Youth Championships. He also served as a team captain. He has gotten off to a fantastic beginning in the professional ranks, and there are some very important evenings in his future. Over the years, we’ve had some truly unforgettable experiences in the North East, and both Pat and Mark are eager to bring large performances and world titles back to their own country.
